Acorns Children’s Hospice and Brindleyplace have launched a new abseil event to raise funds for local children with life limiting conditions, taking place on Friday 28th September.
The local charity is encouraging people to take up the challenge, which will take place at the iconic Three Brindleyplace, recognisable by its columns and clock tower, from 10am – 4pm.
Acorns’ major events officer, Philippa Gay, said: “Abseiling is an exhilarating experience; great for challenge seekers, fear facers, groups of friends or work colleagues looking for a different way to socialise outside of work. And the best part is, people will be helping life limited children in the community by taking part.
“We are hoping to see lots of faces on the day, particularly all the people that work in or near Brindleyplace. Participants will have a wonderful viewpoint of the Birmingham cityscape as they descend down 100ft – a great opportunity not to be missed!”
Kate Fittall, destination marketing manager for Brindleyplace said: “We are pleased to be supporting a local charity and Brindleyplace is ideal for such an event. We hope it’s a big success.”
Acorns provides care and support to over 630 children and 880 families. There is no charge to use the services but it costs £750 per child per day.
